Brad Pitt mystifies as first male face of Chanel No LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Brad Pitt made his debut as the first male face of Chanel s iconic No.5 fragrance on Monday, in an ad campaign that had fans and fashionistas split on the actor s latest role. Pitt, 48, is seen with long hair and dressed casually, looking wistfully into the camera in an enigmatic black and white video directed by "Atonement" filmmaker Joe Wright. "It s not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on. The world turns, and we turn with it. Plans disappear, dreams take over. But wherever I go, there you are, my luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No.5, inevitable," the "Moneyball" actor says. The video is part of a $10 million advertising campaign for which Pitt was paid $7 million, according to Women s Wear Daily. Time magazine s Erik Hayden called the ad "nonsensical," saying Pitt s "vaguely existential monologue . sounds like it could plausibly have been discarded narration from the trailer for Terrence Malick s (film) Tree of Life.

It has also been linked with screen icon Marilyn Monroe after she famously said the fragrance was all she wore to bed. LOVE, SCORN AND AMBIVALENCE On Twitter and YouTube, some fans noted the somewhat ironic coincidence of the campaign s release tying in with the 13th anniversary of "Fight Club," in which Pitt played a consumerism hating salesman. While the video for Chanel No.5 had generated more than 3,000 likes on YouTube within the first 24 hours, it also has 850 dislikes , with some commenters saying they believe the ad did not represent the fragrance. Harper s Bazaar editor at large Derek Blasberg said on Twitter: "I ve watched Brad Pitt s Chanel No.5 commercial, oh, about 17 times today. I still don t know how I feel about it." Another Twitter user, Aime Rogers, said, " WHAT were they thinking?? So strange." YouTube user BabyHippo26, said "So pretentious!!!
